In this unit, you learned how to implement and use different firewalls. For this assignment, you will examine the relationship between a specific crime and the use of firewalls. To complete this assignment, first, find an article that has something to do with a specific cybercrime. After conducting research online, compose a paper that briefly summarizes your article and explains how a firewall(s) could have been used in this specific situation. Within the paper, be sure to answer each of the following questions.
- What was the cybercrime discussed in the article? What was the impact of this particular cybercrime?
- Could a firewall have prevented the crime, and if so, what type of firewall could have prevented the crime? If not, explain why a firewall would not have been effective in this situation.
- How many firewalls should the network have used and why? If none, explain why.
- Where in the network topology could firewalls have been placed?
Your article review must be at least three pages in length, and you must use at least your chosen article as a reference. You may use other resources if necessary. Any information from a resource used must be cited and referenced in APA format.
